The Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities

Meet Asia!

The Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities works to serve as a living museum of Asian cultures, a forum for experience and insight, as well as a constantly changing scene for meeting, investigating and debating the role of Asia in the world covering cultures and tradition today and tomorrow.

It lies in a lovely setting on Skeppsholmen island in central Stockholm, right between the Nationalmuseum and the Museum of Modern Art.

Today the museum collections contain nearly 100 000 objects. Most are Chinese archaeological artefacts and artistic pieces, though through purchase and generous donations the museum has managed to increase its collections from Korea, Japan, India and Southeast Asia. The museum also boasts a large, equally well known Far Eastern Library that includes material from the Royal Library and the Stockholm University Library as well.

The history of the Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities can be traced to 1926 when it was established in the capital city as a national museum with its current name. The core of the collections was the archaeological collections brought home from China by Johan Gunnar Andersson, also called Kina-Gunnar. In 1959 the decision was made to transfer the collections of art, as well as arts and crafts from Eastern and Southeastern Asia then held by the Nationalmuseum. The result was the current Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities.

The main museum building served as armoury for the Swedish Navy. Built in the 18th century, the edifice has been renovated for the museum's use.

The museum edifice was built in the 1700s to serve as the stables and quarters for the Royal Guards of Charles XII.
In addition to its exhibition operations, the Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities does scientific research, publishes material in its area and has a teaching, as well as caring for and preserving the objects.
